Wood Processing Machinery exhibition, Istanbul, 16th-20th October

Wood Processing Machinery exhibition, Istanbul, 16th-20th October Wood-Mizer's band sawmills which incorporate the thin kerf technology that offers both economical and sustainable timber processing opportunities are exhibited at Istanbul's Wood Processing Machinery exhibition, 16-20 October.‘Kerf’ is the term used for the thickness of the cut or material removed by a saw. Too wide, you get more sawdust and less sawn boards or cants. Very narrow, you get less sawdust and as much as an extra board from each log. Hence, theoretically: less trees need felling to convert them to marketable boards. Hence the 'sustainability' attraction.

A smaller kerf also needs less horsepower and cuts fuel consumption. In Europe, America, Africa and Asia the thin kerf approach to timber sawing is used by companies turning out industrial (or semi-industrial) scale lumber.
